What Are the Symptoms of Tendinitis?

The symptoms of tendinitis include:

  • Pain or tenderness at or near a joint, especially around a shoulder, wrist, elbow, or ankle
  • Stiffness that, along with the pain, restricts the movement of the joint involved
  • Mild swelling or thickening of the tendon near the joint

 

Call Your Doctor About Tendinitis If:

  • Your pain doesn't ease up in seven to 10 days; you want to avoid letting chronic tendinitis set in.
  • Your pain is extremely severe and accompanied by swelling and a marked loss of motion; you may have a ruptured tendon, which requires immediate medical attention.
